The arch is a modified bridge pose, with a woman resting on her shoulders while using her legs to hold her lower body off the bed.
"In many ways, she's using the same muscle groups as for the bridge, only working them harder because she's using less to hold herself up," says Fulbright. Your core muscles, glutes, and thighs are all worked in the arch. However, Britton considers this a much safer position than the bridge: "There's no strain on the neck or shoulder region, which can seize up."
